Thanks for reading!
My setting is futuristic-military: earth-born soldiers doing their tour of duty defending fledgling human colonies on other planets against aliens.
I have two soldiers who have been attracted to each other for a while, alone in the barracks showers. Sex ensues. My question is: what can they use as a lubricant?
I found that water is no good, soap is no good. Is there anything else that could be used? (For any site that recommended anything, I found two that said never to use that same thing. It left me very confused.) I should add they are not using a condom (vaccines for STDs instead). Is there any chance at all that with no condom, they wouldn't need a lubricant for anal/have options that are incompatible with condoms?
Considering the sex is based on a combination of attraction, needing to feel alive after the horror of a combat situation, and post-combat "life is too short to keep on being shy", I feel that frottage would be too intimate for the characters. Are there options other than anal that are not face-to-face, and would work with the absence of proper lubricants?
Setting: Small town Indiana (US), Present day.
Search terms: Suspected foul play, Death ruled accidental, Who determines cause of death, How long does autopsy take, Nest material, Can a homicide later be ruled accidental.
MC loses her parents to carbon monoxide due to a blocked furnace flue. Detectives suspect that MC may have tampered with the furnace flue, but the deaths are ultimately (and correctly) ruled accidental.
A repair worker sent to MC's parents house finds a bird or rodent nest in the furnace flue. Among the innocent looking materials, torn remnants of clothing (t-shirt?, socks?, underwear?) belonging to MC are found in the nest. Because the incident occurred on the first night of the heating season, the nest could have been in the flue for weeks or months before the incident. Possible motive comes from MC having arguments with her mother prior to the incident. MC is a former employee of a company that installs heating and air conditioning equipment and the detectives (mistakenly) believe that she may have gotten the idea/knowledge at her old job.
How long would it take for MC to be exonerated and the deaths to be ruled accidental? Out of the people involved (detectives, forensic examiners, coroner, etc.), who would be primarily responsible for clearing MC? The cause of death is confirmed to be carbon monoxide poisoning for both parents, so ruling out foul play would depend on how the flue became blocked, not how MC's parents died.
